Inspired by the iconic Walt Disney full length feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, London-based designer Mary Katrantzou has designed an exclusive collection for iconic Parisian store colette, that will close its door on December 20, 2017 unfortunately.
Marking the 80th anniversary of the groundbreaking animated feature, the collection centers on the scene stealing dwarfs re-imagined in technicolor sequin motifs, boldly embroidered on t-shirts and fully sequined sweatshirts, bombers and dresses. Combining Katrantzou’s signature witty and colourful style with easy-to-wear silhouettes, the collection aligns with colette’s innovative Parisian mix of modernity and originality.
“My work is rooted in visual culture and the collaging of disparate elements in unexpected combinations” says Mary Katrantzou. “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a definitive moment within pop culture and each individual dwarf expresses a different facet of feelings universal to the human experience. This collection is a re-interpretation of the iconic Snow White characters for our times”.
To celebrate the capsule collection, Mary Katrantzou and director Pierre Dixsaut have captured an immersive shimmering wonderland with model Louise Follain. The video will be premiered in the colette windows from now till this Saturday November 25th.
Those beautiful limited edition pieces will be available in store from now until November 25th and online at www.colette.fr from now until December 20th.
